Goodbye Pick a Petal!

Pick a Petal was one of the first sets I started with and I’ve used it soo much for all different occasions….from weddings to birthdays and so much more!

Alas, this set is retiring this year so there isn’t long to add it to your collection….just 9 days left!!

So to show you how easy and versatile it is I’ve been playing!


I’ve cased one of the cards that really made me smile when I saw it….I can’t remember where I saw it first but Victoria has put together a tutorial for Pick a Petal.  You can find it on her blog – definitely worth a look.  Or have a look at my previous creations using the label in my side bar.

Remember!  This set is only available until the 30th September!!

I’ve had another go myself and made this cute and very CAS set of  ‘Thank you’ mini cards:

IMG_1481I’ll tell you about this colour on a better show case….needless to say the new In-color palette from Stampin’ Up! is gorgeous (and includes a lovely lilac!)

IMG_1480Another beautiful new colour from Stampin’ Up!  It’s a lovely marine turquoise colour….watch this space!

IMG_1482One of my favourite colour combinations: Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Nearly Navy.

I’m going to enter these in the Less is More challenge (again….we’re trying to hit 1000 entries this week), but I’m also entering these in the following challenges:

Make it Monday {Linky Party}

Anything Goes {Anything Goes}

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge {One Layer Card}
